Rescue Run: Race for Marine Mammals features a 5k chip-timed trail race and un-timed walk through Odiorne Point State Park to benefit Seacoast Science Centerís Marine Mammal Rescue Program.

Now in its 14th year, this popular race follows the 5k cross-country trail route created by Jennifer Shultis, captain of Team Eastern Mountain Sports, 2006 US Adventure Racing National Champions.

Youíll run through the forest, by the rocky shore, across a sandy beach, and alongside historic military fortifications.

Our run is the largest annual fundraising event to benefit SSCís Marine Mammal Rescue program.

We will cheer you on as we celebrate your support of wildlife conservation and educational outreach work.
The first 150 registrants for the 5k receive a free official wick-wear race t-shirt.

Race shirts will be available for purchase for $15 day-of, while supplies last.

Prizes are awarded in age and gender categories from 6 to 60+, as well as overall fastest male and female for the 5k (must run in the <8 min. pace/mile to qualify for overall winner).

The Kids Fun Run starting at 9:40 am features a 300-yard dash and a half mile run for children ages 12 and under.

Every child that participates in the Fun Run wins a prize.

Following the race, there will be a light runnerís breakfast and fun ocean-themed activities for kids.

Please note that dogs are not allowed in Odiorne Point State Park.

Strollers are not permitted on the 5k trail.
